Picking a New Computer

Are there any website or anywhere in general where I can say what I am going to do on a computer and it gives me a bunch of recommendations?

and what about off brands do they suck or is it all about what is inside the thing.

Anything I want to definitely stay away from as far as AMD or whatever?

TIA

Yes, right here. This is geek central.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I am waiting for Lonely Raven to chime in.....He will build you a system that will power 7 3rd world countries with still room left over to overclock
For regular old home use a good old Dell is pretty hard to beat. AMD processors are great by the way.

I love my iMac and Mac in general - This thing is rock solid and wicked fast and does all I need (which is about the same as your list) and more - So easy to use and care free to boot - Not to mention the remote control so I can do all the nedia while watching the 20 inch monitor from bed - Dig it the most I do

http://www.apple.com/imac/

Whoops, just saw you want a laptop - The Mac Books are sweet too

http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/
